Thread: VMware modules do not compile with 11.2 M8

  1. #1

    Default VMware modules do not compile with 11.2 M8

    I have just updated to 11.2 M8 (from 11.2 M7, by a zypper dup)
    and VMware modules do not compile, (though it worked for M7) :
    vmware-modconfig --noconcole --install-all
    /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl_c.so.2)
    /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl_c.so.2)
    /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.11' not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl.so.7)
    /usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-suse-linux/4.4/cc1: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libstdc++.so.6/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by /usr/lib64/libppl.so.7)

    addendum : the following libstdc++ are installed on my system (no sign of a 3.4.x !...)
    rpm -qa |grep libstdc++
    libstdc++44-devel-4.4.1_20090817-1.17.x86_64
    libstdc++33-3.3.3-14.25.x86_64
    libstdc++-devel-4.4-3.5.x86_64
    libstdc++44-32bit-4.4.1_20090817-1.17.x86_64
    libstdc++44-4.4.1_20090817-1.17.x86_64
    libstdc++33-32bit-3.3.3-14.25.x86_64

    I finally succeeded to compile VMware's modules by using the script found on this page Build host vmware kernel modules - VI-Toolkit instead of vmware-modconfig.

    How did you do that? I'm stuck with the same problem on 11.2 Release.
    The script didn't solve the problem for me

    I am now using VMware 3.0.0 under opensuse 11.2 and it installed like a charm, without the need for the script.
    Sorry for not being to help you more.

    Typo:
    vmware-modconfig --noconcole --install-all
    Change to:

    vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

    This is the ONLY way I can get the VWMare Workstation 6.5 modules to compile on my OpenSUSE 11.2 -- Trying anything with the VMWare GUI installer causes an error message about not having the proper kernel source, even when I do.

    Welcome here

    Please start a new thread, instead of using this old one. Be clear in title description etc., state your openSUSE version, kernel version, KDE4/Gnome etc. That will more likely bring a solution for you, than reopening an old post on a Milestone release.
